Grand Opening Weekend kicks-off with ticketed party, followed by events open to the public
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (May 21, 2021) – The OCC Road House & Museum and Bert’s Barracuda Harley-Davidson are rumbling full-throttle toward their combined Grand Opening Weekend, scheduled for June 25-27. The OCC Road House & Museum is a massive new restaurant and entertainment venue from Paul Teutul Sr. of Orange County Choppers fame, and area hospitality executive Keith Overton. Based on Teutul’s wildly popular OCC brand, the Road House is located on a 9.5 acre complex adjacent to the new Bert’s Barracuda Harley-Davidson, one of the top performing Harley-Davidson dealerships in the nation. The two new neighboring businesses are joining forces to throw “the biggest part of 2021” in celebration of their official openings. Details on the Grand Opening Weekend can be found here.
“It’s been a wild ride to get here, but now it’s time to celebrate all the hard work, planning and dedication of the teams that are making this day a reality, and Paul Sr., Bert and I agreed that calls for one hell of a party,” said Keith Overton, owner and developer of the OCC Road House & Museum. “We’ve put together an event everyone will love – OCC fans, Harley fans, and anyone who loves good food, music, memorabilia, and fun. It’s a great chance to get a taste of what’s to come at this one-of-a-kind entertainment and dining destination.”
Overton, a 35-year veteran of Florida’s hospitality industry, served as President at TradeWinds Island Resorts for the past 25 years. During that time, he and his team worked with Bert King of Bert’s Barracuda Harley-Davidson and Paul Sr. to create the overwhelmingly successful St. Pete Beach BikeFest, which attracted 75,000 visitors to the area annually. “That experience got me thinking about other opportunities to build on the synergies from St. Pete Beach BikeFest and Bert’s brand-new destination dealership, and to further collaborate with Paul Sr. on something bigger and badder,” said Overton.
The Grand Opening Weekend kicks-off Friday, June 25 with a private ticketed event to showcase the OCC Road House & Museum and the state-of-the-art showroom of Bert’s Barracuda Harley-Davidson. The evening will include concert performances by country music star David Lee Murphy, known for such hits as “Dust on the Bottle” and “Party Crowd,” as well as Florida’s country favorite Tobacco Road. Ticketed guests will be among the first to enjoy featured food and drinks from the OCC Road House menu. VIP tickets are $50 per person and include priority viewing for the concert; general admission tickets are $20 per person. The private party is from 4 to whenever the fun stops. Tickets can be purchased here.
The Grand Opening Weekend continues Saturday and Sunday, June 26-27, with the OCC Road House & Museum and Bert’s Barracuda Harley-Davidson both open to the public with free tours and live entertainment from bands including Horses Wild, Florida Country, The Little Kings, Doug South Band and more. Visitors can tour the new state-of-the-art showroom and motor clothing showcase at Bert’s Barracuda Harley Davidson dealership, along with all the latest 2021 models.
Guests will also be able to check out the new OCC Road House & Museum, which will be decked out with a fleet of Paul Sr.’s custom choppers featured on the hit Discovery Network series “American Chopper,” along with hundreds of rare items from his vast collection of biker memorabilia, many never before seen by the public. The $7 million restaurant and museum will be packed with motorcycle memorabilia Paul Sr. has personally collected over the past three decades, including an enormous “patch wall” with tens of thousands of patches he has been gifted by members of the military and first responders over the years. Overton and Paul Sr. welcome military personnel and first responders, past and present, to help continue to fill the patch wall and tribute area with their personal keepsakes, leaving their mark for others to see. An Orange County Choppers Wall of History will feature custom choppers in a “chronology of chrome” detailing the brand’s more than 20-year evolution.
Honoring Paul Sr.’s love of animals, a portion of the museum will be dedicated to the hundreds of animals he and his family have saved over the years, as well as to those no-kill shelters they will continue to support in New York and the Tampa Bay area. The museum’s retail store will feature official OCC Road House Nation clothing for guests, and special OCC “Dog House” Nation items for their pets. Proceeds from pet retail sales and dedicated events will support local no-kill shelters and animal adoption organizations.
With more than 11,000 square feet of indoor space, the family-friendly OCC Road House & Museum will be one of the area’s largest full-service restaurants, with indoor and outdoor seating for more than 370 guests to enjoy a full menu of classic American fare. The restaurant will also feature a massive 25,000-square-foot pavilion for concerts, outdoor dining, a billiards hall, shuffleboard tables, floor games, steel darts, ringer games, foosball and other entertainment and a retail store loaded with merchandise and collectibles for bikers, friends, and fans.
